Temjen Imna Along shares the plight of Nagaland farmers and how they overcame it
Nagaland Minister Temjen Imna Along shared an educational video on the struggles of rice farming in the mountainous region and how people have overcome it.
Temjen Imna Along, the Minister of Tribal Affairs Nagaland, posted a video that showed how terrace farms grow rice. The video explains the farmers' struggles in the mountainous area while depicting them working in the fields. According to the clip, rice farming occupies about 80% of Nagaland's agricultural land. Further it demonstrates how the state's rugged terrain makes farming challenging. These crops are grown on terrace farms, which the inhabitants constructed by carving out the hills in a way that allows them to store the rainwater required to cultivate rice. At times, farmers also make use of bamboo pipes for farm irrigation.
This video clip is an excerpt from Raja, Rasoi Aur Anya Kahaniyaan on EPIC channel. In the post's caption, the minister wrote, "If your intention is good, then luck is your slave. If your karma is good, then there is Mathura Kashi in the house. Must watch the full video to understand the written line."
